That's alot quicker than here in the UK for the nhs psychological services. I'm starting my counselling again next week after a year and a half off due to covid. I'm assuming your in the US, right? Here we have the 'samaritans ' that you can phone and talk to people about your problems. Do you have anything similar over there?

We have like a crisis line that we can talk call, only thing is I used to work in the crisis center and I am employed by the company that has it. Sucks. I’m in the US yes.

Ah shit, I understand your predicament. What's your support network like? Friends, family?
I have my parents and brother. I was going to confide in friends tomorrow, I don’t know what to do to be honest. This really sucks. I know I messed up but the fact she can’t or won’t even think about therapy or anything just kills me.

Probably good idea to confide in friends and family if I were you so people know what your dealing with. When you say "you messed up" do you mean when you hit the booze? What happened? You were obviously in pain. That's why people drink alot of the time.

I had recently stopped taking my anxiety, depression, ptsd medications as I felt I was doing ok but it turns out that I was not. I knew things were not good and I dove into the bottle that day and I let everything that was bottled up inside me out that night.

PTSD is always with us even if our symptoms aren't bad at the moment. I figure I'll be on meds the rest of my life, and that is better than being in pain. I agree with @Survivor3 about telling friends and family. That way you have support in different areas.

You won't be the first or last person to do something like that. It's quite common in fact. You have to be careful with meds. I've even thought tonight about not taking my meds but I have. I'll probably be on them for the rest of my life. Contact people tommorow and tell them what's going on. Eventually you'll start getting professional help even though it takes time. Try to just be civil with your wife and hopefully she might start changing her mind about things. Sorry it's so hard right now.

I had a doctors appointment this past Friday and I talked to him about my anxiety and depression and how it is very bad right now with everything that is going on, he increased my Quetiapine to 4 at HS, I just feel so shitty all the time, I’m actually down 22 pounds since the night things really started to go downhill, last night she brought up all the negative things I’ve done in our marriage and I am at a very low point today. I’ve had some bad thoughts running through my mind and I told me doctor about them but I don’t have any plan or intent to do anything, I just feel like the biggest POS in the world, I know that I’m not the monster she said I was last night but I can’t get over what she said about me, I took the high road and didn’t bring up anything that she ever did and there is plenty, when does it get any better?

It took me 5 years to come out on the other side. That doesn't mean it will take you that long. I'm sorry you are suffering so much for something that is not your fault. Try to keep looking forward and please take care of yourself.

She wants this but is dragging her feet on getting the paperwork done.
